The drive itself is actually made by Panasonic and housed in a matte silver shell, designed by Neil Poulton for LaCie(French company). The main use of this drive is to back up and play large video files as well as Blu-ray DVD's, and also to back up large amounts of important data with accuracy. Maximum Blu-ray write speed is 8X, while maximum CD-R write speed is 48X, overall nothing special compared to other drives. Burning of regular(16X) and Dual-Layer(8X) DVD's is also supported, as well as Rewriting of all formats. The high price of these is largely due to the bundled software and the name, although performance wise it is not that much faster than it's competitors.
